Are there other benefits?

Crime Victims Compensation always pays last. All other public funds and private insurance payments that a person is eligible for or becomes eligible for must be paid and reported to the program before compensation can be considered.


  • A report must be made to police within 48 hours after the injury unless there is a good reason for a delay or the injured person is a child.
  • The victim must be willing to cooperate with the police and the prosecutor.
  • A person cannot have committed or be an accomplice to the crime.
  • Inmates are not eligible.
  • A claim will be rejected if the victim caused the injury or was doing something illegal and dangerous at the time of injury.
